sparrows mini calendar

Hello everyone!  I am so thrilled to be able to share my projects with you.  My name is Diane Zechman and it was such an honor and sweet surprise when Janette asked me to Guest Design for February!  I hope you like what I've created.  :)
Today, for my first post, I have something other than a card.  I've made a mini magnetic calendar to give you a sneak peek of the new Springtime Sparrows set being released this Friday.  I thought the verse would be great for a "daily reminder" hanging on the refrigerator.

Scraps of patterned paper were glued to a 4" square chipboard coaster.  The beautiful sparrows image was stamped directly onto the patterned paper and the branches were colored with Copics.  The birds and flowers were stamped again onto white cardstock...then colored, cut out, and attached over the original image.  A few flowers were popped up with dimensionals.

I'm looking forward to sharing more projects with you.  Have a great Tuesday!
♥  Diane
